1
Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 8. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper

Set up an assembly line of three bowls, the first containing the flour, chilli powder, salt and pepper, the second containing the beaten egg and the third the Panko breadcrumbs

Dip each avocado slice in the seasoned flour, followed by the egg, then coat in Panko breadcrumbs and place on the prepared tray. Repeat until all of your avocado slices are coated
5
Drizzle the olive oil over your slices and bake for 15–20 minutes until golden brown and crisp
6
While the avocado is baking, whisk together all of the ingredients for the sauce in a medium bowl and check for seasoning
